I live with OCD and depression, and I’ve read this post through five times, but these two sentences resonated with me the most. I too, knew there was something very wrong with me, but I was too terrified to ask for help.

What would have happened if that 13-year-old girl had reached out and gotten help? I’ll never know, but perhaps someone else will, thanks to your message.

You’ve helped a lot of people by sharing your story. You’ve helped me. So thank you, thank you, thank you. I don’t think I can say it enough times to express what this post has meant to me.
